Tropical spice garden is set up in a plot of jungle right along the shore. We opted for an audio tour so we could go at our own pace. No need to pre-book tickets, you purchase them on site. The audio guide provided context about...More
My children loved it here, running around the paths and finding little secret areas in the gardens. You get to enjoy tea (herbal) and drink from a fresh spring halfway which was lovely. The kids area is under repair, but otherwise this was a great...More

We showed up first thing in the morning and got really lucky - we had the entire place to ourselves! Audio guide was really interesting and well put together.
I didn't find the mosquito repellant they provided at the beginning very effective - but maybe...More
